Swimming and exploring South Devon, from Dartmoor to the sea
Monday, 14 October 2013
We're at that critical time of year when you have to keep immersing to be able to cope with the cold times ahead. Some friends and I have a regular Sunday morning dip in the Dart which I have only irregularly attended throughout the summer. So this Sunday I was rather dreading getting in. I stood in the water for a while before taking the plunge, while the rest of the party faffed around on the bank. That proved a good thing, as I started to get used to it so when I eventually launched it didn't feel too bad. The water was beautifully clear and there was an amazing underwater autumnal spectacle of leaves drifting down down through the water like little gold coins.
